Heart murmur and palpitations

Common Questions and Answers about Heart murmur and palpitations


Is the fact that I have p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>lpit<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>tions <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd rapid he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt beats sometimes almost a guarantee of a valve problem, or some other he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt problem? Does anyone have these symptoms and have a healthy heart? I'm very nervous. I walk my dog everyday and I'm only about 10 pounds overweight. I am 24 years old.
a he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt murmur from the younger days an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> stay for a while, so you have been experiencing heart problems? like what exactly? have you seen a doctor?
I have he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>lpit<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>tions <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd sinus tach. My doctor says I am fine. I had an echo <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd 24 hour a little over a year ago the 24 hour said "mostly normal monitor with exception of PVC's and sinus tach that may be during driving or precipitated by excercise" the echo said "EF at 58% with slight mitral regurgitation some not visable".
I am a 20 y/o female, that often experience he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt papilations. I have a he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt murmur <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd a slight leaky valve, the doctor couldn't find out what it was caused from she just said I am extremely sensitive. Most people have what I have and do not feel their heart fluttering or skipping beats but I do because I am extremely sensitive.
I have also been told I have a slight murmur. It usually only lasts a few seconds but sometimes will come <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd go until I change positions. anyone have an idea if I should be worried?
Dont be surprised if there is Mitral Valve regurgitation as I have had it for years <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd a he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt murmur (at birth) which was 'innocent' until my thyroid problems started. anyone with a thyroid disorder should have yearly checks with a Cardiologist...its just standard routine.
) I wasn't feeling well <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd when I get dehydrated, here come the palps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd the pvcs...UGH! My he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt murmur was so loud I was a little worried. I mentioned to the doctor that I have my very own "swoosh." Thanks again! Have a great day!
My doc told me to drink one with monitor on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I did this am, about an hour <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd half later my he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt was going crazy. So that will be the last one I drink. I turn my monitor in today and have app with doc Monday. No Friday appointments :( I will let yall know what they say. Will try not to freak out till then. Thanks.
She already told me there is nothing wrong with my he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd every get p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>lpit<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>tions but I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>'t accept that answer especially after getting the v-tach results years ago (1996).
Since then, I've had 2 EKGs from two different doctors <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd they both assured me my he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt is fine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>lpit<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>tions are "normal". For the past year or so, I haven't been bothered by them at all, but now, 2 days ago, they started up again. This has been the third straight day and my heart's been flopping and fluttering almost continuously. In fact, my chest now even feels somewhat sore, like when you've overworked a muscle. Does anyone else feel this? This is more than an annoyance...
I had heart p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>lpit<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>tions rarely prior to pregnancy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I figured they are anxiety related but I had them more yesterday <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd recently so I was just curious. None today. Thanks ladies for ur responses.
The p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>lpit<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>tions feel like my he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt actually stops for a second <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> feel it in my hands <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd head <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd then it feels like I am hit in the chest really hard. are other people palpitations so hard like this???? Thanks.
My dad has arrythmias in which his pulse increases and he has been diagnosed with an enlarged he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd was born with a he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt murmur. He is overweight <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd has high blood pressure. I've had 2 EKGs, a chest X-ray, blood tests, and an echocardiogram done. The EKG showed I was having PVCs. all the other testing came back normal. I was officially diagnosed with benign PVCs. They occur about twice a week. They an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> occur when I'm stressed, after a night of heavy drinking, or after working out.
I have been to see a cardiologist and have had a echocardiography which was normal and also a 24 hour monitor which showed that I got isolated atrial ectopic beats <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd ventricular ectopic beats <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd was also told I have a flow murmur. I was told this was nothing to worry about and is normal but I do worry that it could progress into something more in the future. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> you please tell me if this is correct and if this cause problems for me in the future? Thank you, Natalie.
I listened with my stethoscope <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd immediately heard a loud, probably systolic murmur. Her pulse is normally around 60 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd at this time was at 86. Within 2 minutes this murmur was completely gone and she was feeling normal again. She sees her OB GYN and Internist on a regular basis and no one has mentioned a murmur before. Is this likely to be an innocent episode?
The doctors have always said my pain was anxiety or he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt burn or muscle strain. They have never mentioned a he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt murmur before, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd my chest pain has never been this bad before, either. another thing I should mention....my mother died three weeks ago of lung an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>cer, and it's been a very difficult time for me. I haven't been feeling well in general, and I recognize that my grief is probably to blame, in many aspects.
about 5 years ago I developed a heart murmur. My doctor ordered an echocardiogram at the recommendation of a cardiologist. The results were: ejection fraction of 65%, mild mitral valve regurgitation, mild mitral valve prolapse and mitral valve thickening. Now when I listen to my heart I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> tell the murmur has gotten worse. My symptoms are hard to describe, but here goes. at times I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> actually hear the murmur and feel my heart "squeezing" blood flow, almost like water from a sponge.
I have been to the doctors and they said they couldn't hear the murmur at present, but they think it's a he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt murmur which comes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd goes. I have had a test done and they said that the heart murmur is caused by a leaky heart valve, Could the pain in my chest be caused by the leaky heart valve and is it anything to worry about?
Sometimes a he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt murmur an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> be indicitive of other problems. I have a he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt murmur which turned out to be a leaky mitral valve. Most of the time a leaky mitral valve isn't a problem unless it is a severe case which an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> sometimes warrant heart valve replacement. That is probably why your paperwork wasn't signed off. They may just want to make sure that it isn't related to a bigger problem.
Emergency surgery required. Unfortunately, now my he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt muscle is damaged <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I now have diastolic he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt failure. I am also told, there is no such thing as an innocent murmur. He may be ok now, but I'd have a cardiologist check your son annually. Isn't it interesting that they seem to keep missing the women.
I also have pain in both my armsa nd shoulders, but I feel it more in my left arm and shoulder, and at times I feel the pain in my left side of my face. My doctor said that I have a he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt murmur <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I am scheduled for an echocardiogram next week. My question is: Will the heart murmur go away? also, I play Rugby, will the heart murmur interfere with Rugby? Thank you for your time.
The test will assess the degree of regurgitation (leakage) of the valve and the leakage an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> be caused by the leaflets not fully closing the valve opening when the heart pumps blood into the body system and blood flows back into upper he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt chamber. Many people have mild leakage <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd heard on stethoscope, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd that condition is not considered medically signifian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>t and almost always will not progress, and there are no limitations on lifestyle.
I'm just wondering why you are using a stethoscope unless trained to know what to listen for, and exactly where to place it. Most he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt murmurs are harmless. I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>'t imagine a he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt murmur coming <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd going, murmurs are usually due to valve problems and will remain. If your Doctor has listened, and hears no abnormalities, I would go with that.
as I look back I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> remember times when he would be running around and then just stop and put his hand on his chest over his he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt. I asked him if he was ok <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd he would say say yes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd continue playing. also he has been complaining about his legs hurting which I thought was because he ate too many bananas, but when I cut down how many he ate he still complained about his legs every once and awhile. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> these be systems of poor blood flow?
i am a 36 yr old mother of 4, anxiety and stress problems, experiencing persistant he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>lpit<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>tions <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd anxiety, pounding he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>RT episodes. some during or after meals. no matter what im doing. lying down, sitting, working...this stops me from a lot of activities. very sad most of the time due to these episodes. have had stress test in 2008 at clev. clinic. history of murmur and mvp just recently said i have mvr as well. large goiter said to b possibly pressingon nerves in neck.
I am 49 (turn 50 next week) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd they knew from birth that I had a he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rt murmur. at 14, they did further testing. To this day, I still have not had to have heart surgery. Right now, I am on medication. (How old are you?) Your EKG an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> change over time, due to a number of things. Were any of your EKGs done while you were exercising? I have probably had 20 EKGs over the past 35 years and the only one that ever was "abnormal" was when they had me exercise on a treadmill.
